The Premier League is blessed with some of the best creators in the world and they will be fighting it out again in the 2020/21 season to win the Playmaker Award.
Kevin De Bruyne claimed the award for the third time in 2019/20, recording 20 assists over the campaign, equalling Thierry Henry’s record for the most in a single Premier League season.
It was a comfortable win in the end for De Bruyne – who was recently named the PFA Player of the Year – finishing seven assists clear of his closest rival, Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold.
But Tottenham’s Harry Kane has launched himself into an early lead after helping himself to six so far, just one shy of his best return ever in 2016/17, and we’re only four games into the new season. Jack Grealish and John McGinn meanwhile have both raced into joint-second after helping themselves to three and one assist respectively in the shock 7-2 demolition of Liverpool before the international break.
Check back here throughout the season to see just how the race for the 2020/21 Premier League Playmaker Award pans out…
